    Art is the child of Nature; yes,
    Her darling child, in whom we trace

    Her aspect and her attitude.

    Working in these walls of Time;
    Some with massive deeds and great,
    Some with ornaments of rhyme.

    This is the poem of the air,
    Slowly in silent syllables recorded;
    This is the secret of despair,
    Long in its cloudy bosom hoarded,
    Now whispered and revealed
    To wood and field.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
